I started packaging more than a year ago when I packaged sextractor:
However, I could not get sextractor working with the levmar-2.6, and so
I suspended this.
For starlink-ast, I could however ask upstream about the code. However,
I suspect that they heavily changed it, and it is not trivial to re-use
an existing library.
